Don't Worry, Wingnuts, the Trump Party Won't Do Anything to Your Favorite Nazi

Republican leaders [eventually got around to] forcefully condemned GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Tuesday, calling her comments comparing COVID-19 safety measures like mask-wearing to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany “appalling.”

“Marjorie is wrong, and her intentional decision to compare the horrors of the Holocaust with wearing masks is appalling,” House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said in a statement, which stopped short of calling for Greene to face disciplinary measures. “The fact that this needs to be stated today is deeply troubling.”

This is what Greene thinks is equivlaent to wearing a mask:


Anyone who truly believes that having to wear a mask to prevent the transmission of an infectious disease is the equivalent of being stuffed into a boxcar and taken to the gas chambers or bing marched into a forest and shot beside an open grave is either clinically insane or is deeply evil.

That Greene was elected to Congress as a member of the Republican party and remains a member of that caucus tells me all that I need to know about the GOP, its failed neo-nazi "America First" caucus and the 14th Congressional district of Georgia,

Meanwhile, the Nevada GOP's leadership has been infiltrated by the Proud Boys, which is a terrorist group.

Since the Republican party gave up on governance they are left with electing professional trolls, and you have to admit that MTG is a top notch troll.
The problems with hiring trolls to do the work of legislators are many, and can be seen each day in the failure of the Republican conference to do anything other than glorify Fergus, the Head Troll in Charge.
Problem is that the country actually needs a functioning congress in order to get on with ordinary living, and one of the two parties tasked with running congress is not functional.

Yet you folks elect lots of whackos under the DNC moniker. Like AOC fer example. Waters for another.

Double standards, in your judgement of people, perhaps?

It would be my pleasure to take a standardized poll-test ...

cogent argument would be interesting.. and unlikely.

When did AOC or Walters compare anything to the Holocaust, B? You name the crime without evidence or even the exact charge. A parking ticket has more data and documentation than you have ever brought to back us your vague and ghostly accusations.

B: There may be extremists of a left wing bent in this country, but the Democratic party does not, in fact, elect them to office, elevate them to leadership, or worship them like a perverted golden calf like the Republican party does.

The second picture looks more like a Russian execution judging by the uniforms. In my readings I noted that Nazi controlled countries had some people that were willing to turn in Jews to the Nazis.I believe that there are many people in this world who have to find other people to demean and hate in an attempt to elevate their own self-worth. That is why there were Nazis,the KKK and now a large and loud bunch in the party of Trump.

Whyfor hyperbole and oversimplification is ok when you folks do it?

Dark Avenger said...

B, I’m still gonna choose what I saw over what you want to pretend happened in the Capitol.

Comrade Misfit said...

B, just your normal tour group, right? Breaking windows, breaking down doors, defiling the halls, beating cops, bringing and using bear spray, bringing zip-ties, wearing combat gear and helmets, erecting a gallows-- those are all things that tour groups like the Boy Scouts do when they visit the Capitol, right?

I'd ask why you are so willing to align yourself with the MAGA terrorists, but I guess it doesn't matter. You've chosen to turn your back on what happened, preferring to parrot Trumpian lies.

B said...

I'd take your question seriously when you stop using hyperbole and exaggeration in your descritions of the perpetrators.

How come these folks are "Terrorists" and yet when leftists do similar things they are righeously indignant protestors? (and Mostly Peaceful ones at that?)

The words you use to describe the persons in question show your bias.

Dark Avenger said...

If a BLM protest included protestors with handcuffs, bear spray, and a total of five people dead one cop included, and several cops badly injured, you’d be linking to the video 24/7/365. Show us an example where Lefties did all the things that these “patriots” were caught on camera doing.

Comrade Misfit said...

Dan, the execution was by German troops and Ukrainian allies.

Eck! said...

Mostly peaceful... sure, property damage, theift, murder,
assault, trespass, threats against others.

As one said, "You got a lotta damn gall".

Stop playing the propaganda game. Taking you seriously
is not a option, with the profusion of lies and shaded truths.
It comes down to trying to argue with an unreasonable person.
